The Batman Has Cast Its Catwoman

Zoe Kravitz to Play Catwoman in The Batman

Reeves confirmed the casting via Twitter.

Kravitz will star opposite Robert Pattinson as Batman. The latest update on this front is that Zoë Kravitz has been cast to play Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catwoman.

Reeves, the filmmaker behind the last two "Planet of the Apes" sequels, took over "Batman" directing duties from Ben Affleck in January 2017.

Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman is set to star Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, with Jeffrey Wright in negotiations to play Commisioner James "Jim" Gordon. Reeves has since described the film as a "defining" and "very personal" story about the Dark Knight, rather than an origin story in the vein of Frank Miller's beloved "Year One" series.

We know that The Batman will center around a younger Bruce Wayne and feature a Rogues' Gallery of villains that reportedly includes Catwoman and The Penguin. Back in 2015, the actress revealed she was denied an audition for The Dark Knight Rises for being too "urban".

To be honest, it's hard to imagine more flawless casting. It would be fun to see Catwoman, the Riddler (the rumored role for Hill), and others running amok as Batman is just getting his wings under him. "He's supposed to be the world's greatest detective, and that's not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been". Reeves and Mattson Tomlin wrote the screenplay, and the film is being produced by Reeves and Dylan Clark. Kravitz's TV credits include Hulu's High Fidelity, Big Little Lies as Bonnie Carlson, the woman with a guilty conscience and Showtime's Californication. She also lent her voice to Mary Jane in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Pre-production on the Warner Bros.

"The Batman" will be released on June 25, 2021.
